User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.1) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1

Holding down the ctrl button should show numbers on tabs (1-8 plus last) which are navigable by pressing ctrl+number.

This will make it much quicker to identify the tab you wish to switch to, and make tab switching like this much less error prone.

This would also help significantly in exposing this tab switching shortcut to users.

I suggest replacing the favicon on these tabs with the digits 1-9.

Reproducible: Always
